night Archives - Dangerously Good Stories

“I honestly thought I had nothing left to document. My daughters are 16 & 19; not in the “cute” stage anymore,” photographer Pam Dubasek told us in The Preservation Project’s private FB group. Going into the program, Pam was in a season of more than usual, fast-moving change + challenges: her father-in-law recently passed (“He was the […]

Think you’ve already documented what matters? Let’s check.

I had a great job with amazing benefits + on track for a prolific career. There was one problem: I wasn’t happy. I wanted to pursue photography full time, but knew it was selfish to do that to my family. Still, my amazing, supportive wife encouraged me to do so and I put in my […]

First Clients in a Small Town at the Cherry County Fair

My husband, Dave, and I loved trying a new recipe, cooking with a glass of wine in hand, and have brownies for dessert while watching a new movie… or two… because we didn’t exactly need an awareness for bedtime.
